Karen Pierce – Taking Stock: 44 Years of Basketmaking
Handweavers Guild of Boulder
March 2022 Day & Evening Program
Karen Pierce – Willow Bend Studios – Colorado Springs, Colorado
Karen uses traditional basket weaving techniques and materials from around the world in unconventional ways to create one-of-a-kind pieces. She weaves free hand without molds and color the fibers with dye or paint.
Weaving is a slow and rhythmic process that is like a form of meditation. As a piece grows, she loves to watch seemingly lifeless materials join to form a new body of their own with a unique look, touch and smell.
Karen Pierce started weaving baskets when she was in her mid-twenties. Four-plus decades later, she and ceramist husband Marc Jenesel create one-of-a-kind Raku and woven fiber sculpture in their studios in Colorado Springs, Colorado. They show their work at galleries and high-end juried craft exhibitions in the U.S. Karen will share with us her journey of applying what she has learned to her own unique style of fiber art.
